The faces of West Arthur shire residents have been beamed onto a big screen in Perth in recent weeks.

Darkan Photography Group members originally took the photos for a local exhibition but have now been able to see more than 60 familiar faces shown much larger than life on the Yagan Square tower.

Group member Kerryn Chia said it was exciting to see it all come together.

“We were initially just anticipating a local exhibition, for it to go all the way to Yagan Square is fantastic,” she said.

“It’s a great little bit of advertising for a part of the state that is not very well known and a little bit hidden.”

The faces have been divided into six groups which have been run as videos on the screen at different stages throughout the day from February 18.

Ms Chia said some people sat to take photos of the display while others watched the screen while continuing to about their days.

“Locals watched while they passed from the train station while tourists took the opportunity to sit there and look at it,” she said.
